    I believe these three review can be summarized with "meh".

    I'm a keen SC2 player but its a shame to see these products - they look very generic. It wouldn't have taken a huge amount of imagination to have Zerg, Protoss and Terran themed versions of them so you could pick the version of the race that you play as.

    I agree,
    There is nothing on these products that are of a benefit to any SC2 player. For products specially designed for SC2 I would have expected a lot more.
    I will be sticking to my logitech MX518 mouse and G15 keyboard to help me get pro at sc2 :)

    Game designed peripherals are like the majority of games based on the movies sadly :(

    doubt they'd even let you into Bronze tbh. These 'peripherals' look dire. Do not want.

    Rip off considering the price too. £90 for a keyboard! My Cyborg V7 was £45.

    Using a G11, you gotta love macros in SC2 especially as I play Zerg

    You'd probably need a mechanical to even make a splash.

    Why has nobody mentioned the 2 USB plugs on the keyboard?!
    Why is it not in the article?
    Why 2? Extra power for the lighting?

    My faith in Razer has been declining lately. They've turned out some really great products and still do, but it's so inconsistent. It seems like for every excellent product they turn out there's another piece of absolute trash to follow it up. No surprise that the trash is usually the branded stuff.

    While I think there is an upwards spiral of peripheral pricing in general, Razer seems to one of the more expensive (read: overpriced) brands out there. Adding a licence on top of that just makes the prices ridiculous. I'm fairly sure Starcraft players aren't known for expensive tastes (what's a laser mouse?), so even if this stuff was decent they would have a hard time pushing it.

    Razer makes great products, I use the Razer Naga for Star Trek Online along with the Logitech G11. They complement each other very nicely.

    The strength of good gaming peripherals come from their universality. Outside of EVE online, I never played just one game exclusively for a long period of time.
    Gamers want useful, durable and fairly attractive peripherals, there is no need to style them for one game. We are PC Gamers and have interests both broad and deep.

    Too bad they didnt make a SC2 themed version of the BlackWidow... That's a keyboard a true Starcraft player would actually want to use.
